1. The Tailor Network buyer protection
We believe that all our members will behave according to the The Tailor Network principles of fair treatment to make purchases facilitated by The Tailor Network satisfying for all parties involved.
But while The Tailor Network and all our sellers and service providers strive to provide perfect quality clothes, there can occur reasons for complaints and returns. Most valid complaints, besides life-time fabric or stitching quality issues, become evident within a few days of the expected delivery date of your tailored clothes, like:
The clothes do not arrive,
The clothes do not fit so perfectly as you expect,
The clothes have immediately visible fabric or stitching issues.
So when buying on The Tailor Network, we want to offer you as buyer an additional protection. To protect you from the hassle of reclaiming your money in case any of these cases occur, we only release your payment once we can conclude the clothes have arrived at your place and are to your satisfaction.
For this reason we will charge the amount payable at the order, but will keep the money in a warranty account until we can safely assume that you are satisfied with your new clothes before paying it out to the seller/designer and the service provider/tailor. For first time customers The Tailor Network may choose to waive the right of charging the amount payable at the order, the decision to do so does not constitute a permanent right or limit The Tailor Network in executing it policy of charging at the order in other, or future cases.
